Forum: etree Subject: MP3/OGG removal

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=18795

When I imported this show I'd checked the "Do not make lossy derivations of this show (MP3, Ogg, etc.) box", but they're were created anyway. I tried the "edit show details", and that box is still checked. Any clues as to removing those files?

create an error report from the file's main page, I think...

When I check that show right now, the box to "Do not make" does *NOT* have a check in it.

Check that box, click update, the files will be automatically gone in 12 hours.

Every time I go to the edit page the box is already checked... I even did a full refresh to make sure I wasn't see a cached page. I went ahead and unchecked the box, hit update, then went back and put a check back in.... I'll look back tomorrow to see if it worked.

The box was checked and updated by 2 people yesterday - blguillen and you. blguillen checked it the first time, you edited the show, saw it was checked and updated it again (thus your confusion, I wish he hadn't done that).

The files have since been removed normally.

I went ahead and unchecked the box, hit update, then went back and put a check back in.... I'll look back tomorrow to see if it worked.

Regarding this statement - when you click update, your request to make the rules.conf file goes into a queue with all the other requests. This can take anywhere between 2 and 10 minutes before the request has been completed and the check "sticks". When it comes time for your request, the update needs to find all the download servers that have the show in question (it runs a search), create the rules.conf file and write CAT.lossy inside of it.

This is why you don't see that check "stick" immediately after doing it. If you check it, wait 10 minutes and come back to it you should see it stick.
